Toshiba Satellite L505-ES5018

CNET
3 August 2010
  • Summary: The Toshiba Satellite L505-ES5018 is about the cheapest dual-core laptop that you'll find, and it provides a predictably basic feature set, but boasts competitive performance, respectable battery life, and zero bloatware.
  • Cons: Bulkier and heavier than other 15.6-inch laptops; shortened spacebar and nonrecessed touch pad present some input challenges; so-so audio output; low-resolution Webcam.

Toshiba Satellite L505-ES5018

LAPTOP Magazine
20 April 2010
  • Summary: Even for users with basic needs, the Toshiba Satellite L505-ES5018 is a little too basic. Yes, it costs just $529 through Best Buy, but for just a bit more you can get the $599 HP G62t or Gateway NV5934u, both of which offer much better performance and battery life. If you like the Toshiba brand, spend the extra $50 to get the Core i3 version of this notebook (the L505-GS6002), which will future-proof your investment.
  • Pros: Attractive Fusion Finish, Comfortable keyboard and mouse buttons, eSATA port,
  • Cons: Last-generation processor, Poor battery life, Lacks HDMI, Mediocre benchmark scores,

Toshiba Satellite L505-S5966

LAPTOP Magazine
13 July 2009
  • Summary: The Toshiba Satellite L505-S5966 should fit most users’ basic needs, and at $549, it represents a pretty good bargain. Some may prefer the $499 Dell Inspiron 15, which lasts an hour longer on a charge. But the L505 delvers a more stylish design and a larger hard drive (320GB vs. 250GB) for just a bit more money.
  • Pros: Attractive Fusion Finish, Comfortable keyboard and number pad, Dedicated media control buttons, eSATA port for fast backups,
  • Cons: Poor battery life, Display has limited viewing angles, Mediocre benchmark scores, Lacks HDMI port,
